Ok so the Uber patch has come.... many are rejoicing but for me, fundementaly nothing has really changed. The core of the problem for me is the constant micro management of my 'deaf, blind and dumb' troops/vehicles.
The core of this game is still flawed in my opinion...
In every department from Pathfinding to simple fire and manoeuvre TOW struggles. Troops ordered to move to a position have to be almost instructed on an individual basis constantly if you are to have control over the action. Even small actions, such as soldier v soldier ends in comedy as two combatants stare at eachother, some 8 yards apart...fumbling for grenades!!!
Sadly the tow community and devs seem now intent on this legendary add-on to save the day, well if that's the case I feel cheated....this add-on should be FREE as the game has never really delivered its promises or vision...its still broke!
As it stands its a pretty map generator, with the ability to place mindless drones... and nothing more!
I will however watch this game with interest as I feel all is not lost...yet!
Thanks for listening.
